Dr Cramer is also a Professor in the Division of Kinesiology at UCF. He completed his PhD in exercise physiology and nutrition at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. His research program in exercise physiology and nutrition studies the form and function of human skeletal muscle. Specifically, his laboratory uses in vivo human subject research models to study the applied physiology, metabolic, and neuromuscular mechanisms that explain changes in muscle strength, size, and function during periods of growth and development, aging and sarcopenia, resistance training, stretching, fatigue, recovery, and dietary supplementation. He uses evidence-based information on skeletal muscle to address contemporary problems, discover innovative methodologies, and translate findings to practitioners and consumers.
Dr Cramer has published prolifically, having produced 231 peer-reviewed articles and several book chapters.
